    High-Grade "R" Star

    Fr. 1609* $1 1935A "R" Silver Certificate. PCGS Gem New 65PPQ.
    This is a rare experimental star as PCGS has graded only three pieces with one equal and none higher. Last April in our CSNS auction we had a PMG 64 EPQ example bring $9,987.50, while in September 2009 a PMG 65 EPQ note brought $11,500. These were the last two examples of this star number to be in any of our auctions. This is not surprising as a mere printing of only 12,000 "R" stars will always keep this a rare note and that is especially true in high grade. We also have a high-grade PCGS "S" star in this auction.
